2020 Porsche Macan vs 2019 Porsche Macan

Serving North Bethesda, MD

The 2019 Porsche Macan is a vision of automotive excellence on the road, but it offers more than an appealing façade. With its inspirational blend of desired luxuries and engineering perfection under the hood, the 2019 Macan rightfully deserves a place at the top of your list. Before finalizing purchase plans, however, further review of the exciting updates made to the 2020 model is in order. While the improvements are minimal, they may influence your purchase decision.


The 2019 and 2020 Porsche Macan are available in three similar trims, and they each boast a unique powertrain. For the 2020 model year, the Macan Turbo has a more powerful engine than its predecessor was outfitted with. The 2020 Macan Turbo comes with a 2.0-liter, turbocharged inline-4 engine that offers 434 horsepower, and that accelerates to 60 miles per hour in an astounding 4.3 seconds. The powertrains for the Macan S and the base Macan are comparable across both model years. The Macan S has a 3.0-liter, turbocharged V6 engine that provides you with 348 horsepower. The base Macan trim features a turbocharged inline-4 engine that generates 248 horsepower. For all of the 2020 trims, you can add tungsten carbide-coated brakes for improved performance.


The appearance of the Macan is unchanged for the 2020 model year. Regardless of the Macan that you pick out from our selection in Bethesda, you can appreciate its aerodynamic, high-end look daily. This begins with an elongated grille with a black finish. Its horizontal design stretches across the rounded front end, and triangular headlights with rounded corners flow back over the front fenders to draw attention to the hood’s dramatic slope. With well-placed personality lines across the hood and sides and a shell-style roof, the Porsche Macan exemplifies speed and performance from bumper to bumper.


Inside the Macan, the design and features for the 2019 and 2020 model years hold steady. The driver will feel entirely in control of this powerful vehicle thanks to a 3-prong steering wheel outfitted with numerous functions and a well-designed center stack and console. The console angles dramatically upward to meet the expanded center stack. The console features the gear shifting knob lined by multiple functional controls on both sides. The auto climate system controls sit below an elongated color display screen, and an analog clock rises out of the dashboard. Some of the equipment that you can take advantage of in the Macan for both model years include smartphone app integration, advanced cruise control, a navigation system, a rearview camera, a powered sunroof, heated leather seating, Bluetooth technologies and more.

At Porsche Bethesda, we focus on customer satisfaction as a top priority, and we are looking forward to helping you compare the three available Macan trims for the 2019 and 2020 model years.
